Looks as if Simon Cowell is putting the "pro" in "procreation."
The 53-year-old father-to-be — he knocked up Lauren Silverman, a friend's wife, who allegedly was not separated from her hubby at the time of the knocking — is putting a positive spin on the situation.
"Things are changing in my life right now, for the better," the "X Factor" judge told the BBC on the red carpet ahead of the London premiere of British boy band One Direction's documentary "This Is Us."
"I'm proud to be a dad," he said. "It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it."
